I’m a YouTuber and I watch my favorite creators on YouTube every day. But there are a few things about YouTube that drive me absolutely batty—especially as I try to follow the essentialist philosophy. So for all you minimalists out there, here are a few ways YOU can improve your YouTube experience!

Season 3, Episode 8

Essential Life with Jared is a vlog series all about adventure in Portland & the Pacific Northwest combined with the philosophy of essentialism. It’s about finding your own way and never walking somebody else’s path. It’s about living a creative life that’s most meaningful to you.

BIKETOWN…is feeling sad because tourists don’t want to ride around in the rain. 😭

What can we do to cheer up the poor bicycles? They’re all dressed up and waiting for something to happen…

An essentialist examines their life not only to clear out the non-essential obligations and clutter and bad habits and so forth in an attempt to simplify and focus. That’s all good, certainly. But the ultimate goal is to orient your life such that when opportunities arise which are squarely in your sights for the lifestyle you most desire, you are in the perfect position to give an emphatic YES. In other words, dreams don’t come true just by happenstance. You’ve got to prepare the way.

You know those moments where the lighting outside and the sky get all dramatic for a minute and you’re like…gosh I wish I had my fancy camera on me!? Well this time I had my fancy camera on me! Yippee.

Holiday fun in the Columbia Gorge & McMinnville. Oregon is beautiful almost any time of year, but in the late fall/beginning of winter it is particularly striking. I also talk about the future of the channel and what’s next in 2020!

Haters gonna hate, but the thing is I liked The Last Jedi—even more than some others such as (shock, gasp, horror) The Return of the Jedi. 😱

But it felt small…half of it takes place in outer space or on a small island.

All I want from The Rise of Skywalker is a feeling of BIG BIG BIG.
